What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

There are plenty of benefits to OEM Chevy parts vs. aftermarket parts. It’s a lot easier once you understand the difference between the two. OEM, or “original equipment manufacturer” parts are made by the manufacturer—or, in this case, Chevrolet. This means the parts are built using the same materials as the genuine OEM parts you’re replacing. Aftermarket parts are made by a third party and are crafted to fit a variety of makes and models, making them less likely to fit the way you need. Orange Park and Ponte Vedra Chevrolet owners can learn more about the benefits of Chevrolet parts/Chevrolet OEM parts below!

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Car manufacturers like Chevrolet don’t produce aftermarket parts. Aftermarket auto parts are built at a high volume and designed to fit the specifications of a wide range of cars from different makes, not just Chevrolet vehicles. They’re often more affordable than OEM Chevy auto parts, but that’s usually because they, at best, fit mediocrely. Auto manufacturers don’t recommend aftermarket parts for this reason.

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket

Quality aside, there are a few other reasons to choose OEM Chevrolet parts over aftermarket parts. These include:

  • Less Overwhelming Selection: Whether you’re shopping for a replacement part or special performance parts, you won’t have to worry about comparing quality and price. You’ll get the appropriate part at a reasonable price.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and OEM Chevy parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty. Using an aftermarket part could jeopardize your warranty coverage if it can be proven that the part caused damage to your vehicle.
